WM EMBRY FURS IS BACK

The Embry family started in Lexington, Kentucky in 1904. They had 9 small department stores with 250 employees. In 1988, Bill Fisher, owner of Miss Jackson’s in Utica Square, kicked his furrier out for improprieties. He knew Bill Embry had other leased fur departments with Montaldo’s and other fine stores, so he pleaded with the Embry’s to come run his fur department. “It’s such a long way! “Planes fly!”  It was the best thing we ever did. “Miss Jackson’s was very similar to our stores in Lexington and Louisville. We had a very comparable vendor structure and their patrons had the same affinity for quality and style.”

After selling the business to their New York buying agent 5 years ago, the Embry’s are back in Oklahoma with Wm Embry furs in Oklahoma City and opening this fall in Tulsa! In order to properly store your garments in their cold, climate-controlled vaults, they’re taking in storage at Jules Boutique located on the NW corner of 121st & Sheridan. Please come visit Valorie and Angie, familiar faces from Miss Jackson’s and Koslow’s stores. Store hours are 11 am-5:30 pm on Tuesday-Friday and 11 am-3 pm on Saturday.
